Aerodynamic design

I'm looking for an apprenticeship and am keen to pursue aerodynamic design (for F1), prefereably in a degree-type apprenticeship, although studying part time is always an option. Is there a way to do this with Renault?

new megane rs (1)

Hi Jeremy, Despite what a lot of people seem to be saying regarding the EDC with paddle shifts, personally with my GTnav and coupled with the 4way steering, I have to say that the car is truly masterful through the tightest of bends, the feedback and confidence just flood into the driver, I honestly never believed that a car would handle itself as good as my old Mini1275GT, but OMG the Megane GT is awesome, and now you add more everything with the upcoming RS- I want one!! I have seen the figures being quoted circa £30,000 but with this new engine can you tell me the service intervals so as to factor in a service package? Cheers

Clio wiring

Hello Kevin, I'm not sure if i understand your question. If you are attempting to connect a further lamp to the car's electrical circuit you should either establish the purpose of each wire you can access with a multi meter or seek an auto electrician to support you. Best,

Clio 220 trophy alignment issue

Hi. I purchased a 3 month old clio 220 trophy last weekend. I noticed immediately that it started pulling to the ;left quite badly when at speeds over 60mph. I took it in for alignment and it was apparent that the front left toe was out. The garage made the changes however on a test drive the issue persisted. I returned to the garage and they notified me that I would need head back to the dealership to have the steering rack re-aligned, unsure if this is an accurate diagnosis. Its clear the steering wheel is off center when driving straight as well. Any help would be great

Clio 220 trophy alignment issue

Hello Ben. It seems strange that it needs adjustment? But if it's still not correct i'd suggest getting a dealer to check it thoroughly and make the necessary adjustments. Best,
